I came across this in one of my surveys and am a bit puzzled about the effect.
I have two nested repeats and want to count and show the number of the instances of the second repeat (-> Total Number of Courses). Also, I would like to initiate both repeats without any instances (appearance = minimal).
In case I configure both repeats with "appearance = minimal" I get this result (see Excel file Repeat2WithMinimalAppearance.xlsx):
After initiating both repeats the "Course Number" (second repeat) is zero (where it should be 1, apparently).
Whereas, when I configure only the first repeat with "appearance = minimal" I do get the expected result (see Excel file Repeat2WithNoAppearance.xlsx):
The one and only difference in the two Excel files is the appearance attribute of the second repeat. Can anyone explain the reason for this behavior and also, if this is possibly a bug?
Thank you very much, best regards,
